TILLER'S HIGHLIGHTS 2014

2014 was a transitional year for Tiller’s Folly. After 3 years of constant focus on breaking ground in the South, we turned our attention closer to home, and back to more familiar surroundings. None the less, the year contained a number of wonderful surprises.

 

We bid adieu to the South (for the time being) with a January visit to Atlanta where we performed at Falany Performing Arts Center at Reinhardt University in Waleska, GA. One of the most amazing sounding theatres ever!

 

We renewed our relationship with Caline Artists International, who now handle our bookings. (Our representative Margot Holmes can be reached through our Contact page) We look forward to re-visiting many of our old haunts through the next few seasons.

 

Tiller’s Folly travelled to Prince Edward Island this summer to help to commemorate the first meeting of the Fathers of Confederation; The 150th Anniversary of the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference. While in the Maritimes, we performed in PEI, Nova Scotia & New Brunswick. We had a great visit!

John Cowan released his landmark album Sixty and recorded The Things I Haven’t Done (from Tiller’s Folly – A River So Wide 2007) with Country Music icon Rodney Crowell and  the Doobie Brother’s rhythm section. The track was his first single and launched the album into the Americana Top 20! The album also garnered 3 Grammy nominations! Congratulations John!

 

 

Mazatlan was a particularly amazing time! Our hosts Brent Mcathey and Tanya Carrum of Brenster Productions and Lance Vient and the entire staff at the Hotel Playa Resort conspired to make our show and our stay the highlight of the year. Friends who joined us in Mexico made it all the more memorable!

 

We had a chance to perform at a number of fabulous Celtic Music events including LaGrande Highland Games, The Mount Vernon Highland Games and The Galway Bay Irish Festival (in Ocean Shores).

 

Our Kickstarter initiative for Stirring Up Ghosts- Volumes 1 & 2 was funded and we are able to release our 9th CD, what a great way to begin 2015!!
